• Incy Wincy Topic Tile Autumn 1

Autumn 1

This half term our topic is 'Incy Wincy and friends'. Click on the link to our Topic Letter to see what we have been learning.

This term we have been learning all the new rules and routines that are really important to help us learn and be happy at Hilltop. Our topic is linked to some of our favourite nursery rhymes.  We used text maps to help us learn the nursery rhymes using pictures and actions.

First we sent letters to the nursery rhyme characters to help them solve their problems. We experimented with real eggs to see which materials would stop Humpty Dumpty from breaking when he fell off the wall. We thought of some things he could use to stop him falling, i.e.) a space suit, a seat belt, a comfy chair. Next we helped Little Bo Peep find her sheep by writing 'lost' labels which we put up around the room. Then we retold and sequenced the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We made our own hungry caterpillar books. After that we looked at non-fiction texts about spiders and learnt lots of interesting facts. We linked this learning to the Incy Wincy Spider nursery rhyme. Finally we learnt all about mini-beasts. We had a visit from Tom's Talking Reptiles and met some really big insects and other minibeasts.
